Bartow County Georgia Accident Grim Reminder Head On Collisions Most Deadly Type of Crash


November 29, 2010

A serious head-on accident in Bartow County that caused the death of four people a few weeks ago serves as a grim reminder of the extreme risk of serious injury and death posed by head-on collisions. The Bartow County accident occurred when a Kia Sportage on Highway 140 crossed the center divider and collided head-on with the other driver's Buick LaSabre.

The accident was so serious that three of the accident victims were pronounced dead at the accident scene, while one died during transport to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga. At Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, we have been representing those seriously injured or killed in head-on collisions in the Atlanta area and throughout Georgia for over 25 years.

Over 100 people die everyday in the U.S. from serious auto accidents and head-on collisions, which also often lead to catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, internal organ damage, loss of limbs and broken bones. A head-on collision occurs whenever the front ends of two vehicles collide. These accidents frequently occur on freeways when drivers cross the center median or go the wrong way on freeway on-ramps or off-ramps, which means head-on crashes often involve high rates of speed by both cars. The high rates of speed combined with the exponential increase in impact resulting from both vehicles moving in opposing directions can make for horrific results. Head-on wrecks may also result when drivers at intersections disregard traffic signs or signals.
